Annual Report 2014 | S P SETIA BERHAD GROUP | 65
Team Setia has raised a total of
rm65 million for the foundation,
from just the annual charity
S P Setia’s corporate responsibility charter of “Building Sustainable
Communities for All” embraces everything S P Setia does, as
reflected in the acronym ECO which stands for Environment,
Community and Organisation.
Our CSR activities encompass many years of social work carried
out through our charity trust, the S P Setia Foundation, which
was founded in 2000, under the auspices of S P Setia Berhad. The
foundation’s aim is to help underprivileged individuals and charitable
bodies. Our key areas of interest are Education, in particular, the
Setia Adoption Programme, General and Medical Welfare.
The fund is administered by a Board of Trustees. Our major
fundraising activity is the annual charity dinner that has become one
of the most highly anticipated and prestigious events of the year.
As at 31 October 2014, the Foundation has raised a total of RM65
million, which has been utilised to aid the underprivileged and the
deserving throughout Malaysia.
While the Foundation continues to play an important role, we realise
that the concept of corporate responsibility encompasses much
more than just philanthropy. This led to the framing of our corporate
responsibility charter in 2007, to better express our goals and
aspirations as a socially responsible corporate entity.
